UNEARTH Sign Worldwide Deal With CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS
Enter Studio with Will Putney (Every Time I Die, Body Count, Gojira, Thy Art Is Murder) For Late Summer/Early Fall 2018 Release
Band To Appear During Final Vans Warped Tour (6/21-8/5) on Mutant White Lightning Stage
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MARCH 14, 2018
After an awe-inspiring 20 years of blazing trails and dominating stages, UNEARTH is now
institutionalized as a relentless force in heavy metal, standing the test of time with
consistently triumphant creative output, tireless road warrior resilience, Blue Collar style
workmanship and a resolute determination to deliver the goods.Like Slayer, Cannibal Corpse, Testament and Anthrax before them, UNEARTH emerged as part of a burgeoning revolution in heavy music but continued to maintain their relevance and mastery of their craft. They’ve resisted and prevailed against changing trends, subcultural fashions and the way music is obtained and distributed with their credibility, integrity and unique persona intact.Therefore, it makes perfect sense the band have decided to sign a worldwide deal with the global-dominating, barrier-shattering metal label CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS on their seventh full-length release.
The band commented:
We want to thank everyone at Century Media for bringing us into the fold to partner with a label that has such a rich history in Heavy Metal and Hardcore while also continuing to be at the top of the label game. We’ll see you all this summer starting on Warped Tour and continuing far beyond with worldwide touring on our new album.”
Century Media Europe’s Head of A&R, Jens Pretuer added:
I was a huge fan of Unearth’s “Endless” EP (2002) and their performance was sheer energy – and it still is! It was great to follow their evolution starting from the early metalcore scene to the main stages of major festivals like Wacken, Hellfest and also this year’s Warped Tour. We already released their last album “Watchers Of Rule” on Century Media Europe and are very proud about a new worldwide partnership. Thanks, Unearth! Looking forward to the next chapter!”
UNEARTH are excited to reveal they will soon begin recording the highly anticipated follow-up to 2014’s “Watchers of Rule” (previously released on Century Media in Europe and eOne Music in North America), with Will Putney (Every Time I Die, Body Count, Gojira, Thy Art Is Murder, Silent Planet) at Graphic Nature Studios. Additionally, the band have confirmed that Killswitch Engage’s Adam D. will be recording drums for the effort. A late Summer/early Fall release is expected.
Mike Gitter, Vice President of A&R for Century Media USA, further commented:
Will Putney has become one of metal’s true “go-to” guys and a production force in his own right. Having Adam D. involved is a creative stamp that has been part of Unearth’s best work to date. Having them both involved should be absolutely crushing.”
With over 500,000 in worldwide album sales, UNEARTH’s continued staying power has also
UNEARTH will next be seen featured on the final installment of the annual Vans Warped Tour on the Mutant White Lightning stage. For tickets & further information, please visit http://vanswarpedtour.
